If you’re invested in the beauty space at all, chances are you’ve heard of SkinCeuticals’ widely beloved C E Ferulic serum. It’s widely lauded as the absolute best vitamin C serum that you can buy, with plenty of clinical studies and articles out there to prove it. I’ve gone through two vials of it myself, and considering how many products I’m constantly trying, that says something. Vitamin C, vitamin E, and ferulic acid are all powerful skincare ingredients that work well together. Let’s break down why they’re so good to add to your routine:
Vitamin C: Topical vitamin C is by far one of the most dermatologist recommended ingredients for skin health. It helps brighten skin, slow signs of aging, and protect skin from free radicals and sun damage that can lead to dark spots and wrinkles. The most common form in skincare is L-absorbic acid.
Vitamin E: Vitamin E helps hydrate skin and maintain moisture, and it may even help with wound healing and curbing extreme dryness. Vitamin E is often used in tandem with vitamin C because it helps keep vitamin C more stable, boosting its efficacy. If you’re not sure if a product contains vitamin E, look for tocopherol on the ingredient list.
Ferulic Acid: Ferulic acid is an antioxidant that helps other antioxidants work as well as possible. Similarly to vitamin C, it can also aid in diminishing the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, and dullness.
